Petrea Burchard

About me

Petrea Burchard began her acting career on the Chicago stage, later moving to Los Angeles to work in television, film and voice-over. She’s known as the original English voice of Ryoko, the sexy space pirate in the anime classic, Tenchi Muyo!.

Auditions, jobs and the people she met in Hollywood (famous and infamous) became fodder for her popular Act As If humor column at She also drew on her acting experience to write her first novel. During a summer Shakespeare course at Oxford, she fell in love with the English countryside and the idea for Camelot & Vine began to take shape.

Other published works include articles, short fiction and essays. Petrea lives with her husband in southern California.
